  • Rise to the GST Challenge in Indian Retail Rise to the GST Challenge in Indian Retail Hari Madhavan - Director ERP Practice - Promantia Global Consulting LLP (& Geoff Nairn) Jan 31 2017 10:30 am UTC 30 mins
    The Goods and Service Tax (GST) will radically reform India’s economy creating a common Indian market for goods and services, and bringing important benefits for retailers. For example, manufactured goods could become cheaper, logistics and inventory costs will fall, and the obstacles to e-commerce in India created by state restrictions and levies will reduce. GST has to be implemented by September 16 2017 at the latest, so time is running out for retailers that have not yet embarked on a strategy to make their practices and systems compliant with the new GST regime.
